The highlight of this past weekend for us was seeing Harrison play in his FIRST Basketball game. We've signed him up with Upward Basketball. It's a great outreach program offered by a lot of churches around here where they teach them the fundamentals of the game as well as focus on scripture memory, good sportsmanship and developing Godly character qualities. We love it! Each week they get a an iron on star to put on their shirt for different qualities they showed during the game or practice. Harrison got the "Christ-Likeness" star for being a good friend and encouraging his teammates! Of course, we think that's the BEST star to get! :)
Harrison really enjoyed himself, which I was SO happy about. They are just so cute all running around out there. I love seeing them try to defend their opponent. Half the time they are both standing there with their hands up defending each other and not interested in which team is supposed to be going for the ball!!! So Cute!!! It's so fun to see them exposed to these new experiences and learning how to get out there and try. I'm so proud of our boy! :)
The other parts of the weekend were spent cooking (Beth) which I've needed to do for a LONG time and a Super Bowl Party on Sunday night. I didn't take any pictures so I have nothing to document it! Oh well, guess I was having too much fun socializing! :)
